2019 Triumph Street Scrambler and Street Twin

THE STREET Twin range has been a big hit for Triumph – its biggest selling ‘modern classic’, and hugely popular amongst new riders, and customisers looking for a simple base bike to work on.

And Hinckley’s given the Street Twin and Street Scrambler a bit of a makeover for 2019, with a slew of engine, chassis, tech and styling upgrades.

First up is the motor – the 900 High Torque twin-cylinder lump is a bit steady at the moment, only putting out around 50-odd bhp. But it’s getting about 9bhp more, a lift of 18 per cent, with a higher-revving redline, now up to 7,500rpm. The motor also gets a stack of lightweight parts – magnesium engine covers, lighter crankshaft, balance shafts and clutch.

On the chassis front, a new Brembo four-piston caliper upgrades the front brake, and should give much better power and feel than the previous two-piston Nissin sliding design. There’s a new cartridge fork for better damping, and the riding position is also tweaked for extra comfort.

Triumph reckons the new Street Twin and Scrambler have the best tech package in their class, with plenty of new rider aids. There’s new Road and Rain riding modes, which tweak the ride-by-wire throttle maps on the single throttle body, plus switchable traction control and ABS. There’s also a new optional tyre pressure monitoring system, normally seen on high-end bikes, plus a USB socket under the seat and factory immobiliser system.

Finally, the styling’s been subtly tweaked, while still remaining fairly true to the originals. There are new cast aluminium wheels front and rear on the Twin, while the Scrambler sticks with wire spokes. Both bikes get higher-quality badges, with a new logo, and there are heaps of minor upgrades to materials and design all through the bodywork.

 

We’ll be riding the new bikes next month – more when we get it…
